‘I think we’ll do better than 2010 with the likes of Partey, Dede, Kudus’ – Abdul Salam Yakubu


New Edubiase United FC owner, Abdul Salam Yakubu says Ghana will do better than 2010 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar which starts in November this year.

The Ghana Division One League Zone Two side president believes that the current Black Stars players have got what it takes to deliver for the nation as they head for the fourth FIFA World Cup appearance.

According to him, with the likes of Thomas Partey, Andre Dede Ayew and Mohammed Kudus available for the team, the Black Stars team will be performing well and do better than 2010 squad by reaching the semi-final of the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar.

“I think this team will do better than 2010 squad with the likes of Partey, Dede, Kudus and others we will qualify easily from the Group H,” he told Westgold Radio.

Ghana have been drawn against Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay in Group H and despite the strength of the team in the lot, Mr Yakubu remains hopeful.

“Their leader isn’t active like before, Cristiano Ronaldo in 2014 isn’t the same as now. South Korea isn’t a football nation. Uruguay has only Suarez and Cavani who are not dangerous like before so we can qualify at their expense,” he added.

“The black stars will reach the semi-finals in Qatar with the kind of technical handlers we have, Otto Addo, George Boateng and Chris Houghton are world class coaches with experience of which we saw how technically good they are in the second half of the friendly Ghana played against Brazil .

“So we hope for the best and wish the black stars the best of luck.”

Ghana will play European giant Portugal in the opening game of the tournament on November 24 before taking on South Korea on November 28 and Uruguay on December 2.
